3 out of 5 eggsDecent mic for the price

Pros: -Good price
-Decent sound quality: Not great but audible and clear enough for other (online) players to hear you

Cons: -Wire doesn't seem like it would last, seems thinner than a standard 3.5mm wire on headphones
-Wouldn't use it for recordings or for presentations

1 out of 5 eggsbroken tech support

Pros: might be an okay mic
you can use it with or without the included extension cable
the mic connector pivots 90 degrees allowing you to orient the mic in different positions relative to the connector.

Cons: I called Olympus tech support to ask if this mic works with a regular computer sound card. They said it does. Turns out it doesn't. It does work with my digital voice recorder, but I can't really judge the quality from that. Only gets one egg due to their tech support being out to lunch.

another con is that the included foam windscreen will not stay in place very well and you will probably lose it unless you glue it into place.

Other Thoughts: it might work okay with a digital voice recorder or a sound card that can accept this type of microphone. Hopefully you don't have to deal with their tech support.

I did buy this from newegg a couple of weeks ago but for some reason I'm unable to find a link to review it in the list of items I can review, so it will probably show that I didn't buy this from newegg, even though I did. Oh well at least this is just a review system and it isn't responsible for cutting off the flow of oil in a well blowout.

5 out of 5 eggsreliable

Pros: clear audio-easy to understand
little scratch-friends have only complained once
picks up voice well-ive had people in my room talk to my friends while being across the room
clip-able- has a clip for ur cloths or an edge on ur desk
reliable-hasnt failed yet
plug n play

Cons: like others, cord is too short for me by like 5 inches....
NO WORRIES THOUGH. I currently have it UNDER my desk about 2 feet into it, by my knees, and my friends hear me just fine.

Other Thoughts: its simple. you cant go wrong with it.
i recommend this to anyone looking for a mic w/o an annoying stand. something that just works and gets the job done well w/o a hassle.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good sound quality

Pros: Sound quality is very good. The clip is very convenient and can be removed if you don't need it.

Cons: Cord length (3.3 ft.), either too long for camrecord or too short for PC users. It is most suitable for clipping on the cloth to give a lecture, etc.

Other Thoughts: I have used Zalman Mic1 for two years, mainly for on-line gaming, ventrilo, etc. It is a good tiny microphone for reasonable price. I upgrade Zalman Mic1 to ME15 and it doesn't let me down. You can tell their difference immediately.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Microphone!

Pros: Great pickup, great clarity, convenient. The quality is great whether or not the mic is just clipped to a cup on my desk facing me or actually on my shirt.

Cons: None so far. It seems pretty durable, will update if it breaks.

Other Thoughts: Worked way better than I thought it would. I accidentally left it behind my computer for a half hour while playing games, they said I sounded fine the whole time. I'm in a house with a lot of ambient noises within 2 miles of a train station and an airport. Great mic.
